Hello all! I just found this page today, and I'm joining in. I have 3 poodles, Lulu is my 12 year old miniature (sable), Ellie is a 2&1/2 year old black standard and Claire is my baby, a 14 month old black and white parti standard. I do obedience training with the standards, and Ellie is working to become a therapy dog. The poodles fill my empty nest with lots of love and comedy, they keep me and my husband entertained on a daily basis - I just love them!!
